"Museum historians Jennifer A. Kulikowski and Kenneth E. Peters have compiled this pictorial tribute by relying heavily on the collection of the Raleigh City Museum. They invite readers to step back in time to a more simple era when trolley cars clanged along Fayetteville Street, jazz echoed from Hargett Street, and the roar of the crowd erupted at Devereux Meadow Baseball Park."
Oddly enough, a more highly ranked on Amazon book with an arguably better cover photo on a similar theme by a content mill, Historic Photos of Raleigh-Durham, not only treats "Raleigh-Durham" as an actual place but also scrapes content written by John Dancy-Jones from my site netweed.com [twice] for its Amazon description!
The scraped content is from the days when Raleigh Nature was hosted at netweed, way back when, and John was writing about a review copy of the book.

"the Museum invited some of the state's major writers and poets to contribute responses to works from the Museum's permanent collection. The contributors were asked to submit a previously unpublished poem or a work of short fiction or creative nonfiction that connected the written word with the visual representation. The book that evolved from this project includes new works from forty-five writers and poets. Each written piece appears adjacent to a full-color reproduction of the artistic piece which inspired the writer..."
"For example, Alan Shapiro responded to the image of a victorious hero on an ancient Greek vase by composing a poem about men weeping...and more generally about notions of sexuality, a subject he has examined in his recent work. Inspired by Milton Avery's "Blue Landscape," Lee Smith wove a haunting tale about a lonely little girl named Daisy who finds solace with an "orchard girl" on a nearby ridge."
"a mobile library project that allows you to explore North Carolina State University campus history using selected mobile devices. WolfWalk provides information on the history of approximately 60 major sites of interest on the NCSU campus, together with multiple current and/or historic images that are sourced from the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center."
Actually, I don't know what he'll face but I remember (said grandpa) walking down Hillsborough St. with Mike Dean back in the 80's and having a Raleigh detective come up, stop him, request his id, ask if he'd been spraying graffiti and then letting us go on our way. Mike said they'd been stopping him randomly ever since some fans sprayed C.O.C. on the wall of some house they'd broken into even though no other connections were made to members of the band.
In the above video, Carnevale says he was charged with misdemeanors and that the barrel company doesn't want to press charges. Actually, they want to use the sculpture for marketing, or murketing as the case may be, which may or may not fit Carnevale's agenda but bodes a positive outcome.
Let's hope Detective Local Yokel bears that in mind!
